TORONTO, July 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Seneca College recently announced that all students and staff will be required to take the COVID-19 vaccine by this fall, making Seneca the first postsecondary institution in Canada to mandate the experimental vaccine.
“Seneca will be making vaccinations a condition for students and employees to come on campus for the fall term, starting Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021,” he said.
Agnew claimed that the college will not force anyone to be vaccinated, maintaining that the college will “respect medical exemptions upon presentation of appropriate documentation.”
However, this does not seem to include individuals who do not have a medical exemption but are unwilling to take the vaccine because of its adverse effects.
He did not explain why young adults should receive the experimental vaccine when the recovery rate for COVID-19 is between 97 percent and 99.75 percent. The COVID-19 vaccines have not been approved as safe or effective by the FDA, are still experimental, and only meant for emergency use.
People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

Seneca College Student Federation president Ritik Sharma claims that students support the new policy. “They are very much liking this policy,” she told the National Post.
Other Ontario universities, including Ryerson, Ontario Tech, and Western University, will require the vaccine for students who wish to live in residence but not physically present on campus in general.
In Manitoba, universities have assured students and staff that they will not mandate the vaccine. “We can’t demand anybody to get the vaccine. That’s not within our power or the province’s power,” Brandon University president David Docherty told CBC News.
Recently, an American high-school student developed a heart condition after his school forced him to take the inoculation to play soccer.
While Alberta premier Jason Kenney has joined Ontario premier Doug Ford in rejecting the idea of vaccine passports, some organizations, including the Toronto Region Board of Trade, are pushing for a vaccine passport system.
Quebec recently threatened to enforce vaccine passports for access to non-essential businesses, which may include churches, if there is a further outbreak of COVID-19.
